bowles. >> president obama today and mitt romney were both in ohio today. which has the biggest electoral fire -- the other guy needs to not lose it. the new cnn/opinion research poll out today research poll shows obama up by four, 51%/47% among likely voters. that poll was taken after the debate -- actually after the debate. before the debate obama had a wider margin. >> when you think about ohio. >> he said -- with el reinvented a dying auto industry, that supports one in eight ohio jobs and has come roaring back to the top of the world. >>> another big speaker joining the fight tonight, we don't have it yet. bill clinton will be in vegas, he's out there joining the campaign. what will be his role? >> i think bill clinton will play a big role. he has a way to generate that energy. the polls are showing there's still this gap that exists for a lot -- >> why can't he defend the president? >> that's a very curies thing. bill just has a way of sort of taking have convoluted stuff, issues, and breaking it down for folks. >> obama is a professor, a constitutional lawyer. >> i agree with you.
is that important in modern presidential politics. both the romney and the obama campaigns are out stumping tonight. mitt romney and president obama have 50 possible states to fight over. they have nine or so swing states that seem to actually be in play. tonight mitt romney and barack obama are both in just one state. mr. romney appearing with chris christie and rob portman in akron, ohio. the president showing up with will.i.am. >> buckeyes, we need you. we need you fired up. >> ohio is going to elect me the next president of the united states. >> all the interest in competing in ohio, the desperate need to win the election in ohio, the dualing rallies and the ground games, all that comes from the context of a big surprising decision in ohio this afternoon. about how the election is going to be run there this year. back in 2004, the night that the democratic ticket decided not to concede the race on election night because they were waiting on results. part of what was happening in '04 was this. these horrendous epic lines for ohio voters. they waited ten hours and more in ohio in 2004 to cast a v
on that issue. here's the difference. both can be a bad cop china, but romney's also a good cop to work out a positive trade agenda to grow the economy as well. >> let me ask you about ohio. it's your home state. what's been happening there? maybe things have shrunk. what were you thinking? >> i still get the sense obama's ahead. i think that might have been a obama high point. i think he was trending down, then the debate happened. i just came back from a few days in ohio. i think he's outspending romney on tv there. i think they both have a very strong ground game. sherrod brown's probably a point or two up on that as well. so i think it comes to the next two debates. it's a swing state. results will be within 1% of the national results. >> item going to hold you there. virginia will be the one that's closer. always good to have you here. thank you, sir. our monday political panel is here to kick off the week, but first, it's columbus day. you know what that means? this is the day that columbus sailed a ocean blue and did not have time for soup. the mess is closed. don't forget to check o
excuses. >> but while the romney campaign body language has changed, both are anxiously awaiting the first good post debate polls. those will give us our first look at the race after the debate and the friday unemployment report. plus, where will romney be when the results of those polls begin to come in. will he be in coin flip races in places like ohio, iowa and wisconsin? where will the president's number be? still sitting at 49 or 50 or have fallen down to 47, 48? national tracks are one thing. battleground states are another. tuesday, romney stumps virginia, then ohio with chris christie in cuyahoga falls. in three straight rallies in florida, he recounted his memories of a 14-year-old boy, david, that he befriended with leukemia. >> i sat down next to him and he said what happens next? and i spoke with him about what i believe happens next. clear eyes, full heart, can't lose. david can't lose. i love the greatness of the soul of the american people. >> david's parents, members of romney's congregation, spoke at the convention. it's one of those things that you a lot of people have be
. we talked about can governor romney put pennsylvania into play. both of these states were out of reach, michigan and pennsylvania heading into the first debate. look where they are now. dead heat statistically in the state of michigan, where romney was born. his dawas governor. in pennsylvania, a close race as well with the president on top. i'm a bit skeptical. i want to see if this happens in a second and third poll but this is very important. states like this suddenly being in play heading into the final couple of weeks because if the president has to start spending time and money defending pennsylvania and defending michigan, that means less time the president is spending in florida, in ohio, in the western battlegrounds. at the moment the map is expanding, finally the romney campaign would say in its favor. >> interesting. john, thanks. >>> let's dig deeper. let's look forward to round three of the debates on tuesday, where the campaign is headed. joined by patrick millsaps, former chief of staff and paul begala. the latest polls came out after last week's debate but also
have serious problems with what mitt romney did and i think both of them would say he just doesn't get it. he doesn't understand the stewardship responsibilities of the president of the nights. his speech, if you think about it, was a speech designed for the 1950s when america was six times larger than the next biggest economy, could do all things in all places. he attributed george marshall in this speech, who was a great man in my view, it was interesting he spent so much time on israel in his speech today but it was george marshall who was -- >> i think he's appealing to the evangelicals on that front. i think it's pure politics. >> what's interesting about the speech is there's a lot of talk about strength and resolve, but there's really nothing showing us what he would do. he kind of implies we'll go to war and we'll do all these things, but he's kind of a chicken hawk in his actual policies, too. what are we going to do about iran? we'll get tough with sanctions. that's what obama is doing. what are we going to do is syria? we're going it try to find those people who we can help
in iowa, right now mitt romney is standing both for it and against it. and at this point, in a presidential campaign, that is not tenable, not for long. also, second point, while trying to get away with this idea that he's not in favor of legislation to restrict abortion rights, despite his record to the contrary, it should be noted that mitt romney picked as his vice presidential nominee an anti-abortion absolutist named paul ryan, a man who has co-sponsored 38 anti-abortion measures in congress. who today outside an ice cream shop in florida said there is zero daylight between his and mitt romney's ideas on this subject. what paul ryan believes on abortion mitt romney believes to. right down to redefining rape in co-sponsorship with todd akin? is that included? mr. romney said today under duress that the romney/ryan position is the romney/ryan position, there's no difference between them. and he said you'll hear more about it at the vice presidential debate tomorrow. i bet you will. joining us now is steve kornacki, co-host of "the cycle." thanks for being here. >> than
polling that reads like a battle damage assessment from last week's presidential debate, both nationally and in one battleground state it shows a big swing toward mitt romney. take a look. late this afternoon, there was this latest national pew research poll. governor romney now holding a four point lead among likely voters surveyed october 4th through the 7th, after the debate. that's a b swing from mid-september when president obama was ahead by eight. that was this afternoon. just a short time ago, a poll running in the detroit free press shows the president's lead shrinking to just three points in michigan. mr. obama had a ten point lead there last month. mitt romney's running mate, paul ryan, is in michigan tonight addressing a rally at oakland university in the town of rochester just outside detroit. the question tonight, if the mood of voters is changing here, could it also be a sign that it's changing in ohio as well, another key battleground state. the poll in the free press and the pew poll not the only good news for the romney forces. they got a big boost as well in gallup's t
. john, so this new pew poll showing romney with a lead raises the already high stakes for both tickets on thursday night. vice president biden, paul ryan. does either have an advantage, you think, going in? >> you could say paul ryan is younger, has more passion, has more energy. you could say joe biden is more experienced, 36 years in the senate, the sitting vice president, he's been on this stage before. biden on paper has more experience at this. ryan says he's outgunned. we will see how it goes. americans pick presidents, not vice presidents. where can you go back in history and find a game-changing vice presidential debate. you mentioned governor romney does have some debate right now. the republican base is energized right now, so this is how his campaign views this. paul ryan can continue that momentum or he can do something that chokes off that momentum. >> there was a lot of pressure in 2008 when biden was going against palin and he had to come off as not being condescending, not seeming sort of dismissive of her. it's a very different dynamic. >> yeah. he didn't want to appea
is where both the president and mitt romney are. and on one hand, the president's going to hang out in columbus because he's trying to one up the score. that's a good democratic county. but cincinnati, it's a swing county, right down here. it's one that president bush carried by 23,000 votes. the president carried it by 21,000 votes. it's going to tell you a lot about what's happening in ohio by where that goes. and then moving on into virginia, it won't come as a surprise to folks that the big swing county is in the northern virginia area, since that's where all the growth has been. and i'm sure folks are wondering, is it -- well, let me move here. technology stalls a little bit. is it a loudon, a fairfax, a prince william? well, according to our numbers, it's prince william, and the county seat of prince william, that's manassas. the joke about virginia is when you drive on i-66 in virginia, the welcome center when you've entered the state of virginia, you have to drive 30 miles to prince william county in manassas, and that's when you get the "welcome to virginia." but actually,
that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimmy carter and barack obama. >> reporter: to put his vision into action, romney will have to win first, which explains why he made an impromptu stop at a nearby elementary school. at this stage of the race, the pictures matter almost as much as the policies. romney did mention the obama campaign's trump card on foreign policy, the killing of osama bin laden, but he seemed to give the credit to what he called, quote, military and intelligence professionals. romney will now shift back to the economy with campaign events coming up here in virginia and also in iowa and ohio. wolf? >> jim acosta, thank you. let's go back to gloria borger. what was mitt romney trying to accomplish with this marriage foreign policy speech today? >> well, i think he was trying to do a bunch of things. first of all, on the leadership que
both before and after the debate and nationally in gallup's daily tracking poll which covers october 2nd through the 8th, mitt romney now holds a two point edge. today, gallup shifted from registered to likely voters, which tends to favor republicans. that said, though, it is hard to find any evidence, any evidence that president obama escaped denver without at least some damage. the only question being how severe and how long-lasting. that seems hard to dispute. just as it's hard to dispute that prior to the debate, mr. romney was getting hammered in the polls. keeping them honest though, disputing or downplaying the obvious, that's what campaigns do on both sides. >> it's not going to be about the polls. >> i wouldn't put a lot of weight in any of these national polls for the next cuouple days. >> in terms of mitt romney surging, just remember how much of a deficit he had to make up. he was in some cases double digits behind the president in all those attributes. >> pull back the reins. >> the media is focusing on one poll. >> that's reaction to the recent batch of polling, including
can't get much closer than this. mitt romney gaining on the president in poll after poll. >> and by the way, i think paul ryan will do great. >> both sides will join me here. and in the corner the democrats debby wasserman-schultz. >> it was a terrorist attack. let's be honest about it. flip-flopping again on abortion. frank bruni and my panelists go toe to toe. this is tpiers morgan tonight. >> good evening. 27 days to go until the election look at where we stand tonight. 48% for mitt romney and 47% for president obama. anything could happen on this race which tells you how high the stakes are. joe biden is in delaware tonight deep in debate preparations. paul ryan arriving in kentucky a little while ago. over the last four years we have not had the kind of strong leadership we needed in washington to take on our challenges. time and again he told us he would take on the things that he needs to. he hasn't and i will. >> in the midst of all of this talk of our debate. listen to what he told diane sawyer on abc. >> if you have a bad game you move on and move forward to the
attorney general and romney supporter mike dewine. gentlemen, thank you both. let me sort of kick this off and answer the first question for you. governor strickland, i assume you believe that president obama will win ohio. back that up for me. >> well, most of the polls over the last several months have shown the president with a consistent -- small but a consistent lead, and that lead seems to have widened within the last 30 days. i believe the president is going to win ohio because he rescued the auto industry, which is so important to our state. he passed the recovery act, which is important to me in terms of keeping police officers and firefighters and teachers and other people, building infrastructure in our state. plus, you know, candy, the president tells the truth, and quite frankly, i don't think mr. romney is a very truthful person when it comes to talking about the economy and what he plans to do. he says, for example, that the ryan budget is a marvelous budget. it doesn't achieve balance for 30 years. it's not a fiscally responsible budget. it voucherizes medicare, and it priv
. arthur got it right. romney has said now on several occasions, both during the debate several times and just before the debate, he is going to put strict caps -- are you listening, jared -- strict caps on itemized deductions. those caps will range between $17,000 and probably $40,000, $45,000. the more money you make, the lower your cap is going to be. once you apply those strict caps, then the math adds up if you get some decent growth, that is. >> one more thing, larry, the deductions are the greatest benefit at the highest tax rates. so therefore limiting the deductions at the highest rate gives you the greatest base and revenue -- >> all true, art. but here's the thing. he has taken off the table capital gains, dividends, interest deductibility, the mortgage interest deduction -- >> no, he hasn't. he has not. jared, he's said everything is on the table. jared, my friend, when asked this question, besides the specifics of the dollar limit, he has said everything is on the table. come on. that's what he said. >> he can't do that without raising taxes on middle class people. >> yes
on "power lunch." >>> it's your money, your vote. let's check out our cnbc obama and romney portfolios on the back of yesterday's vp face-off. both indices are down today with the market but the president's portfolio is leading this year, it is up more than 10%. mr. romney's portfolio up about 1%. so what kind of stocks are in those particular portfolios? the president's has autos, health care and housing stocks such as tesla, tenet health care and dr horton. mr. romney has tobacco, coal and oil stocks such as philip morris, halliburton and arch coal. >>> it was a story that our wealth editor robert frank -- we called him swanky franky -- brought to you first a couple of days ago here on "power lunch." millionaires and billionaires, the swanky, getting massive tax breaks for moving into a swanky condo building in new york. we said it would cause outrage, and indeed it has. robert is here with new developments. >> just to continue the rhymes, it's made some people cranky! well, city officials are now taking a closer look at those tax breaks that are given to new york's tallest and most
the fact that despite what was truly a lopsided performance, both in terms of reality and certainly in terms of the media portrayal of the performance, that romney has closed the gap, but still if the election were held today, if you're looking at the swing state polls, the president would still probably win. >> yeah. nate silver tweeted that saying people getting way too excited about these little moves in polls. i think he has the obama chance of victory at somewhere around 75%, which is down from 84% just a few days ago. but still, a 75% chance of winning. thank you both very much for joining me. >> thanks lawrence. >> coming up, mitt romney is now bi-curious. what does that mean for paul ryan in his debate? just how bi can paul ryan go? >>> and big bird's most passionate defender will join us later which will give me a chance to have a mini "west wing" reunion. and a member of the science commit me who thinks science is alive from the pit of hell. and he thinks he's a scientist. also tonight steve mor continue -- martin decided to do his political commercial, one of those guys,
by on your side is the fact that both governor romney and congressman ryan say we are not going to make any cuts in the defense budget. it is the largest single piece of the federal budget, and i don't know any chief petty officer or master sergeant for that matter who wouldn't say, look, there are some ways to find some savings here without diminishing in any way our capacity to protect the national security of the united states. is it completely off the table? and if it is, how do you ever get to the deficit reduction that you need to without making some of the trims and making it more efficient? >> no, tom, it's never been completely off the table, and it's just not an accurate statement. we have always said that everything should be on the table. and i, for one, would never say you can defend every dollar and cent being spent at the pentagon. but what we do know right now is the question before us is is looming sequester. and that has serious implications so far as our ability as americans to be seeming a global power because if that sequester hits, i don't think there's any question th
've said the position on iran for both the president and mitt romney is very, very, very similar. >> well, soledad, we would disagree with that. the president came to power with a hand outreached for engagement. he kept quiet during the green revolution when those seeking freedom and space with civil society in tehran were being beaten, arbitrarily arrested and even killed. and he's continued to reach out. these sanctions he's now imposing now actually were forced on him by democratic senator menendez and republican senator mark kirk. the white house opposed those. the message in tehran has been one of weakness. and not resolve. bismarck, the great leader in europe in the 19th century once said that diplomacy without the use of force is music without instruments. this administration doesn't have credibility. the result is that the president of iran comes to the united states, and he -- he says that israel should be eliminated. he says that we don't have a right to contain his nuclear breakout. then our president doesn't have the time to meet with our best ally in the region, bibi netanyah
. there was a piece in the washington post about the romney camp taking advice from both sides. you can see this in the confused nature of the foreign policy. but on the debate, again, the vagueness of it. saying, well, you agree in 2014, we do too, but and then there is that sort of -- it's very, very difficult for the romney campaign who desperately wants me to say we are not like this other guy who you don't like much, but we are. >> right. that's right. exactly. >> on the afghanistan time line, same thing. look, there is the issue of how many troops remain after 2014, 15,000, 10,000, what their abilities and what their duties will be. iran, for instance, it's like, well, i mean, there's -- we -- joe biden and barack obama have said that we will not allow iran to get a nuclear weapon. they disagreed on where this is and where the intelligence is on this. look, if you want paul ryan to be specific about it, what will you do? will you go to war? that's biden hectoring him. i think there's an opportunity for the left of the democratic party to say the same thing to joe biden. when we say we
increases and it probably means the tax reduction for businesses both large and small. i think that's very positive for economic growth. my friend mona sharon wrote a piece called the romney boom, and i believe entrepreneurs are so ready to have a boom, if only the -- if only the tax and regulatory threats would be removed, zack, that's why i'm saying people might want to get ready for a boom if the election goes on its way. >> if washington can get its act together, president obama favors lowering the corporate tax rate. if washington can get its act together to bring u.s. corporate tax rates. . if you want to do the romney boom just stick to the coal and defense stocks. if you want to do it safe, coal defense stocks. >> what about banks and what about cyclical retail? that's the last one. >> i did the cyclical retail. health care, you know, it's a difficult thing. >> all right. gentlemen, i'll leave it there. zack carrabell, thank you very much. lee munson, up next on kudlow, the nobel peace prize gets awarded to the european union and it's the nutiest thing i've ever heard unless you're
family that both the husband and wife worked there. they're not going to be able to send their kids to dance lessons for god's sake. and this is mitt romney's way of making money. >> and no doubt about it. >> america has to see this, ed. america has to see this. this can't be the america we're heading to. we have to stop this from happening. >> we will continue to stay on this story. leo gerard of the steelworkers. again, a nonunion shop in freeport, illinois. the union is just speaking up for these workers. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. great job quarterbacking the show last night. i used to be a quarterback, but i'm just your offensive lineman right now. i kind of -- i really do enjoy that, by the way. >> ed, there is nothing offensive about you anymore. thank you. it was a great night. i am so looking forward to tuesday, i can hardly stand it. usually i look forward to the weekend. now i just can't help but look forward to the next debate. >> i hear you. great job. have a great weekend. >> thanks, man, you,
done. >> it has never been done. >> jack kennedy lowered -- >> now you're jack kennedy? >> both campaigns are claiming victory. >> mr. ryan said that governor romney was a car guy. if they have an elevator stacked on their couch, i guess he was. >> there was one person on stage who was thought full, respect l respectful, steady and poised, the kind of person you want to turn to in a crisis and that was the next vice president of the united states, paul ryan. i see these obama rallies and they're chanting four more years. our cheer is four more weeks. >> guys, i have to say, that was easily my most favorite debate of the season so far. i think biden was the clear winner, gave democrats the shot of energy they needed, hammered them on the 47%, hammered him on lying, said the facts matter. the moment where they talked about abortion was so destructive because ryan said i'm going to make you all do what i believe in my catholic doctrine and biden said, hey, i believe this, i respect catholic doctrine but i'll let you do what you want to do and made the case that the supreme court i
. >> i know. you wish for both. >> when all of a sudden romney turned around and, anyway. >> that's right. that was because of that. >> yeah. we're going to continue with our what's working series with dan fuss, with the total analyzed return above 10% since the fund launched back in 1991. but first, andrew. andrew, you have the morning headline. >> i do have the morning headlines. let's talk about them. alcoa reporting better than expected earnings in revenue after the close. the company earned 3 cents per share for the third quarter. that compares to expectations o of a break even quarter. among the catalyst, stronger demand for aluminum products from airplane and automobile producers, this did, though, offset weak aluminum prices and china's slumping economy and that has a lot of people concerned. cautioning that the company's noticed a slight slowdown in some regions and end markets namely in china. so it's lowering its global demand forecast. and yum's earnings also beating the street revenues roughly in line. the company's raising its full-year outlook after sales in china held up d
. >> general clark and ambassador, you both made great points. thanks so much for being "outfront with us tonight. >>> and we have to move on our to fourth story "outfront," mitt romney speaking at length about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed ambassador stevens and three others and what he would do about the situation there. >> in libya, i'll support the libyan people's efforts to forge a lasting government that represents all of them. and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> eli lake with the daily beast has been out front on the libya story from the beginning with what the u.s. knew, when the u.s. knew it. he joins us once again with increasing information on this. so, i want you to clear up something. you've been reporting today about the militia and some leaders of that militia in benghazi, who were allied with our mission there, but then said we're done with you because you don't like who we support for our new leadership. was that accurate? were they threatening to pull that w
they are both going to be talking to women because the biggest change that happened after the last debate with president obama and mitt romney is mitt romney closed the gender gap. republicans don't need to win when to win the election. if they can reduce that to a few points that will be an interesting dynamic i will be watching tonight. to see how aggressive can both of the candidates be but at the same time not alienating women are focusing on their comments that there likable and not too nasty and negative. gerri: we will be watching alongside you and watching your tweets if you are on twitter. thanks for coming on tonight. coming up, how richest man in the world is getting richer. here's a hint. you. is president obama teaming up to make al gore richer? one lawmakers upset by this disturbing pattern and wants green handouts to stop. he joins me next. jack, you're a little boring. boring. boring. [ jack ] after lauren broke up with me, i went to the citi private pass page and decided to be...not boring. that's how i met marilyn... giada... really good. yes! [ jack ] ...and alicia. ♪
is how both sides are ma nushing each other, positioning each other to avoid any kind of condition and that is good. >> were you surprised romney dropped what had been a staple of his peaches which was kind of a china bashing paragraph? >> i was relieved. i think the worth part of the romney campaign is the ceaseless and i think very feckless and ultimately dangerous china bashing. we want china as a rising economic power and as a responsible political player and i hope that this is an indication that romney at some level beyond the purely political and beyond the politics in ohio understands this. >> on that note, brett stephens, danielle, victory, bill, pleasure to have you all on. up next, what in the world. the case for a new public policy in america. aisle explain. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about low-cost investing. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like our exchange traded funds, or etfs tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 which now have the lowest tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 operating expen
is the same. i think it's starting to don on romney there's no free lunch tax cuts. for obama, there's no free lunch from raising taxes either. they're both going to face, i think, very similar realities. as i like to say, the math is inexrabble. >> it isn't the same. the math isn't the same. i believe that if you do the right thing, you broaden the tax base, you take away the loopholes, i think that there is a nonstatic aspect. there's economic growth that can make up a difference, which is at the epicenter of that 5 trillion number. >> not just that, they both have very different attitudes about spending. >> but guys -- >> which they've highlighted. >> i think we're at a point now where we've figured out tax cuts don't pay for themselves. >> i disagree. tax cuts that last one year where you don't know what the next two, three, or four years is going to be. if we had a tax going on for a long time, i think it would be a big time boost to the economy. >> very, very quickly, guys. look, they've only got 30 days after the election. i know the negotiations have already started. what would a compr
